They had not seen each other since Ihcy were members of (lie Institution's first graduating duns 48 years ago. Moore, now n resident of Sun Francisco, captained the Volun r leers' first, foolbal] Ueam In 1890. "We practiced down there where the tennis courts are now," he explains, pointing out an open window. "We didn't have any scats and didn't dim-go admission to eamcs. People . stood along ."the sidelines . . '. moved up and down the field with' lhe players." i As captain, Moore conducted practice, worked out' plays auc! perfected signals. "We didn't have a coach," he asserts. "I remember the day the first coach was hired. "I had the Icnm down on the field practicing and a inun by the name of Cannon came down and told me he had been hired us coach and would take over. That klnda hurt me. "I was pretty fiery back in those days and when I got through telling that fellow what I thought, he went back up lhe hill lo the offices. I never stuv him again," l-'IKST I)KO1> KICK DKATS VANDEHim/r It was.during his days as captain that Moore discovered the iron- kick.

Other Clubs Finding Them Tough; Chicks Trip Lookouts By Onlled Press The Nashville Vols, playing over the ,500 mark for the first time this season, today were beginning lo bear out Manager Larry Gilbert's reputation, for strong finishes. It's nothing unusual fcr Gilbert teams to flounder around in the second division for the first half of the race and the Vols Ihls year have acted suspiciously like the New Orleans aggregations Hint Larry piloted before lie transferred his affiliations to Nashville. With the Vols crowding on the heels of the fourth-place Sm:k!es, managers are passing the word around that Gilbert is under way and Nashville will be hard to keep out of ii berth in the play.-oll.

Philadelphia » St.,'Louts NEW YORK, July 28 (UP)—I 'orgct the exact date of (lie last .line :I rose In defense of nn uiiin- leiu athletic offlclil, but the police seigcanl who ii doing a "biography of me places Hie time as ni-6und:-Uic luni of lhe century. Since then I Imi" done mj I to atons for this mistake by belaboring the grand panjandrums of piny with every key on my typewriter, tnlllng flicm,• onions oilier things,, vacuous viceroys, nitwit nabobs,' siMy sahibs, nnd cockeyed Caesars. I didn't miss the heads of any £)x>rt, cither, but ranged| from throwing lire labor lo-worn-' en's gymnastics. I Now, .after so many Lyears, I must 1 again enlist on the -side-of the enemy, tills lime In Uic person .of Walter Pate, non-playing captain of lhe Untied Stales Davis Ciiu 'team. From Scabright, N. J., whore the first ot the i our niajo 1 ;'.tournaments which will decide the personnel of the 1930 American cup side, is being played, come alarming icports of rebel- lion'against Cipiolp. Pale. Tlie players mirier his ;commnnd, alt of whom are tlespevalely anxious lo earn a cup licrlh, bitterly resent . what they consider the "teacher's pet'" attitude of fate toward Gene Mako. One of my informers, who is back In New York to ransom his extra pair of ilan- nels from n Chinese laundry, says open revolt will come, with the .men turning on Pate with tlieir j racquets, if he iasisls on playing Mako In doubles against tile Australians. "If Captain Pate keeps ou pampering . Mako," another of our in- FermeTs said, "lhe boj-s who believe they are better than dene arc likely to yank lhe cnplaln out tin a court and give him a practical demonstration. of how good their torehands. backhands, lous, and volleys are." Obviously this Is the most serious tennis crisis since William Tilden the twice used to create a lawn tennis Munich every other time he stepped on the court. It is regrettable that Mr. Chamberlain can't spare the time lo come hopping over here with his umbrella and handle the appeasing. But as lie can't, perhaps we had better leave It to Captain Pate. He' has proved himself a better than fair hand nt assembling a squad for the winning and defense of the.cup. F.very once In a while he does something'' that makes you wonder if his nickname of "Addle" Isn't justified, but on the whole he does a good Job. If Pate rlocs have nn especial interest nnd pride in Mako it isn't surprising. Critics sneered when Pate insisted Mako was the man to team with. Don Budge last year but Pate had the satisfaction of seeing the team win the Wimble- poor play, not Mako's, that brought about lhe defcal , ' :. 11 should lie remembered, in whacking Pule over lhe head for Davis Cup mistakes, Ihat the man Is serving as cnplain for nothing more; llmti expenses, if that, uritt that,"nil''-lie lias to enln out of the Job Is a share of tlie glory when the u.
